NHS Blood and Transplant has revealed that 40% fewer new volunteers came forward across England and North Wales to give blood last year compared to a decade ago.

The organisation is calling for more people to help fill the gaps by starting to donate.

To mark the start of National Blood Week (8-14 June 2015), which culminates with World Blood Donor Day on Sunday, NHS Blood and Transplant has explained that 204,000 new volunteers need to come forward this year across England and North Wales to keep the nation’s blood stocks at a safe level for the future.
